ANDERSON — The only two local teams who did not attend the Vern Hawkins Invitational at Georgetown had radically different experiences.

The Ripley Blue Jays travelled north to Blanchester for the Blanchester Invitational, but thunderstorms shortened the event and ended it after just 12 total events were finished.

Western Brown, however, had a much more complete day at the Anderson Invitational, held at Anderson High School in Cincinnati April 21-22.

The boy’s team earned a solid fifth-place finish, five points behind Milford for fourth. Loveland and Kings tied for the team title with each school earning 106 points. Host Anderson was third with 69 points.

On the girls’ side, Western Brown placed eighth, five points behind Mt. Healthy for seventh. Turpin won the team title with 141.5 points in the meet.

Western Brown’s Hunter O’Hara placed seventh in the 110 meter hurdles, finishing less than two-tenths of a second behind Goshen’s Jacob Hopkins. Gabe O’Hara placed fifth in the 100 meter dash, posting a mark of 11.75 seconds. He placed .06 seconds behind Anderson’s Harrison Hill for fourth.

In the 400 meter relay, Wyatt Fischer, Gabe O’Hara, Cody Hanson and Blake Colliver placed second, .45 seconds behind Cincinnati Country Day. Rob Contay placed seventh in the 400 meter dash for the Broncos, crossing the line in 55.25 seconds.

Fischer earned a top-three finish in the 40 yard dash, racing to a 4.93 second mark that was just .04 seconds behind Anderson’s Harrison Hill. Gabe O’Hara placed third in the 200 meter dash, finishing less than a second behind event winner Zion Wynn from Loveland.

Sophomore Zach Stacy earned a third-place finish in the shot put, with his mark of 50 feet, 10.5 inches placing him roughly four feet behind Glen Este’s Austin Snyder for first place.

Stacy and teammate Jacob Altman placed sixth and seventh, respectively, in the discus throw, which was also won by Snyder. Logan Hunley placed second in the high jump, clearing the six-foot mark on his third attempt. Milford’s Dustin Reynolds cleared it on his first attempt, giving him the victory. Neither of the two were able to clear the six-foot, two-inch mark.

Autumn Boothby’s seventh-place finish in the 100 meter hurdles got the girls’ team off to a solid start. Teammate Tori Patton placed eighth in the 300 meter hurdle event for the Lady Broncos.

Hayley Clark posted a time of 12:42.15 to finish ninth in the 3200 meter run, 10 seconds behind Madeira’s Kayla Kamil.

In the field events, junior Brianna Pack won the shot put with a mark of 35 feet, 8.5 inches. Fellow Lady Bronco Ginny Pollard was seventh.

Pack also won the discus throw by over five feet, defeating Milford’s Clare Carthueser. Alexa Harris was 10th in the long jump and Boothby’s third-place finish in the pole vault rounded out the Broncos’ scoring.

The Broncos are back in action this Friday, April 29 at Walnut Hills High School for the Walnut Hills Invitational. The team will head to Kings High School for the Kings Invitational next Tuesday, May 3.
